Hewitt/Leightener

Does anybody know anything about theFred Hewitt/Amy Summerson family from Ridgeway?(circa 1873-1875) They were my grandmother and grandfather on paternal side. Fred's parents are supposedly John Hewitt and Emma Leightener (Leidner?)John and Emma, I had heard, moved from PA to homestead in Minnesota, leaving fred in the care of the Leighteners. He went by that last name until his marriage to Amy Summerson, when he started using his birth name of Hewitt. Fred and Amy then moved to Erie, PA with their 4 sons, John (my father), Earl. Paul, and Ward. I can find no records of John and Emma Hewitt. I don't even know If Fred had any siblings. Can someone please help me learn where else to look and find records?
